Sorry I started working on the mod on the front page and could not finish it because I looked at the clock and I was almost late for work. So I had to leave before I could get the thumnail photo working. It is working now. What it does is loads a random photo every time someone logs onto the front page. If you hit the refresh key while you are on the front page it will relaod a different photo.
I can set it to do a couple of different things. It can display as many photos as I set it to. It can also display "random" or "most_views" or "latest" photos. I set it to random right now.
